Christmas Kickstart Challenge #80 - It's Christmas, Jim, but not as we know it!

Welcome to Challenge #80, where I'm delighted to be joined by the adorable Edna and some of my very best crafting buddies... The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.

This month we're playing

It's Christmas, Jim, but not as we know it!

Now, this is one of those challenges where you can play the theme in a few different ways. I'm not sure where I found this phrase, but I thought it would make for a fun theme for our challenge. This is a festive corruption of a supposed Star Trek quote...

The Sisters are showing you the different ways you can play this challenge. You can ink up your space themed stamps or get super-inventive with your dies just like Jules did for this brilliant make:

Or you can play with a non-Christmas set like Chris has here and just 
give your card Festive tweak...

Or you can opt for a non-traditional colour combo...

Or you can go for something a little unexpected...

Feel free to play this fun theme any-which-way you want to! Just remember to explain your thought process on your blog post!

As always, there's a lovely prize for one lucky RANDOM WINNER curtesy of the lovely Rudolph and his RANDOM RAFFLE.

  1. Thanks for inviting us along in this wonderful holiday challenge! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

  2. Love your Mr. Spock meme, Jo - I'm such a Trek lover that I think I'll go the space theme :) Thanks for the inspiration & fun challenge!!

  3. Ooooh, such a fun challenge, Jo! I took the easy way out and went with non-traditional colours LOL! The cards are all amazing, especially the Star Trek one! So creative!

  4. I love that slogan "It's Christmas, Jim, but not as we know it". I am going to have to go into spaces unknown to come up with a card, but I will, I will. :)

  5. I posted the wrong photo for my entry #45, although the URL is correct. Please look for the card with the elves caroling in the old village. Thank you.

  6. Finally got a post done so I can enter Christmas Kickstart! Next year I hope to do a lot more of your challenges. Love the creative cards you all made!
